some Awe

It was just another morning. I got down from the bus on Residency Road and was walking towards Richmond Circle. As usual, I had tuned into a radio station. I had just locked onto Indigo at that time and the RJ was playing a Back Street Boys, which happened to be one my favorites. As i merrily walked on the footpath, singing along, cars whizzed past me. I did not pay particular attention to any of them. And then, out of nowhere came this beautiful lady driving a posh car. She too whizzed past just like any of the cars. But then just as she was passing by, I read the words that she was mouthing. For a moment, I was transfixed, for she had the same words in her mouth as mine. I was wonder struck by the sheer coincidence. Just then, I realized that she had headphones plugged into her ears.... She must have been listening to the same track that I was. Right now, it may seem too obvious, even bordering on stupidity. But back then, it was one fleeting moment of pure, unadulterated awe!!

Sometimes coincidences like that happen.. and one just keeps on wondering about the hows and whys.
Its good that you put it into words. It will bring a smile on ur face every time you'll look at it :)
